Here is the info from the link above that talks about cross reaction between Macadamia Nuts and Hazel Nuts, etc.

Potential cross-reactivity
Macadamia nut belongs to the Proteaceae family, which are classified separately from most other tree nuts and from Peanuts.

Partial cross-reactivity has been reported between Hazel nut and Macadamia nut (4). In a study of Almond, antibodies developed to Almond were shown to be specific for Almond; however, some cross-reactivity was observed with extracts of some tree nuts and of Sesame seeds. Sodium dodecylsulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and Western immunoblotting indicated that anti-Almond antibodies recognised proteins extracted from Black walnuts, Brazil nuts, Cashews, Hazel nuts, Macadamia nuts, Pistachios, and Sesame seeds, in addition to those from Almond (6).
